would like to candy some pecans tonight. have tried a few methods already but none have worked that great for me. i've tried on the stove top with brown sugar and didn't like the result (melting first then stirring in the nuts). i tried the oven once by misting them with water then rolling in sugar, the nuts were done before the sugar carmelized so that didn't work. using maple syrup on the stove top works great but as much as i like maple flavor i prefer sugar.
any recommendations are appreciated!
